Nice and helpful staff (particularly two of the girls), fine wifi connection, a simple but acceptable breakfast, always clean and a nice pub. The location is fine, 15 minutes walking from Victoria. No kitchen and just four showers, my only complains. Could be better, could be worst. At the end, an overall fine stay

This hostel lets you leave your luggage in a secure storage room until midnight on the day of departure - this is fantastic! It lets a traveler explore the city without the burden of their bag on their last day and is the main reason I'll return to this hostel on my next trip to London.

Good location if you want to be near Victoria coach station! Be warned bunk beds are 3 beds not the normal 2!

Triple bunk beds were annoying. They were so wobbly I was woken every time someone moved. It seemed like it was just too many people in not a very large room. It's not a bad place, I merely hoped for more. This isn't one of my top hostels I've stayed at.

Nice location, nice beds, nice bar... This hostel isn't amazing but it is nice. A kitchen would be super -- officially you're not even meant to bring your own food in -- but apart from that no complaints.


91%

The only down side to this hostel is that there is no kitchen and the hostel has a rule that you are not allowed to bring your own food into the hostel to eat. There is a bar on the first floor which also serves food, but the prices are high. Other than that, it is a great hostel; clean, friendly staff, lockers and luggage room available. The best part is that it is at a great location! Only a 10 minute walk from Buckingham Palace and just a few blocks away from the Victoria station.

Pros: pleasant staff, opportunity of storing luggage, free breakfast, soft beds, calm place, great location Cons: 1 shower and toilet for about 40 people, no place to lock your luggage except small lockers (but luckily nobody steals there), breakfast is the same every day (toast with marmelade), not enough sockets Overall, we enjoyed our stay and the accomodation was good for the price.

it's a nice place to stay. The staff is nice, one of them has helped me to contact with my relatives in london by lending the telephone of hostel generously. The breakfast is just so so... but the breadfast in london is just so so too the location is not very well. Though tranquille and calme, yet it will take a long distance to get to the metro station of Victoria, but that area is quite safe and clean.

Generally a good hostel. Clean and organized. It just misses a comunal room, with TV & some coaches plus whatever else that makes a cozy space where the interaction among the guests could take place. Concerning the rooms the hostel needs more power inlets and better wifi signal, easy to implement that all. Bed linen was clean. Another missing add-on is a kitchen, I'm sure you would gain good points after providing a good one. The localization is very good in a quiet accessible district.

Wifi, but no hostel computers you can use if you don't have one yourself.

I have stayed in this hostel a number of times and always enjoyed it, I usually travel from Liverpool to London by coach and it is conveniently close to Victoria Station. However, during my recent stay, I was very disappointed to find that the self catering facilities, which were very popular, had been taken away. David, Liverpool, UK.
